    Even though I got accepted into my firm yesterday, I still got ABB when I should have got AAA and although I'm happy with the B in French, I'm much more concerned with the B overall in English Lit especially as its my degree subject. What hurts most was that I was 3 UMS marks from an A overall. So I was wondering would it be worth asking for a remark or should I just leave it alone?

    Also if my grade happened to go down, would that result in me losing my place at university?

    I am in exactly the same situation, although I got BBB and was three UMS marks off an A overall in Law, which I worked out was only one raw mark! I really wanted to get a remark initially just because it would be nicer to have ABB and it would look better on my CV and things in the future, but due to the cost I was going to just leave it. Then I found out that my university offers a £2000 scholarship for people who get ABB! So I have decided to put in for the remark.

    In answer to your question, do you know how many raw marks off you were? And also how many raw marks marks were you off the lower grade?
    It is unlikely that out of the 400 UMS you would go all the way down a grade but if you look at the raw marks you would be able to see the risk. Are there any sort of scholarships available to you if you go up?

    As English is marked subjectively, unlike the sciences and maths where you are right/wrong, I think it is worth filing for a remark. I was 3 UMS off an A* in Chemistry but I know there's no point in remarking my exam.

    You're only 3 UMS away; it's very unlikely you will go down a grade. As you have got a place with a lower grade, I don't know if you need to notify your University or not.

    Well in terms of raw marks I'm 3 raw marks away from the next grade and 1 raw mark =4UMS
